A lighthearted look at the casseroles protests in Montreal.

Banging pots and pans has become a symbol of protests against the emergency anti-student-protest law in Québec. Residents bang them from their balconies as the protestors march by, and they've taken to the streets in their own protests that crisscross the path of the student tuition marches.

I love the impact my choices had in the Walking Dead game.

Except for my choices in Season One (which didn't get copied properly to Season Two), and my choices in Season Two (which disappeared when I started the final episode), and my choices in the final episode (which disappeared when I finished the final episode). Otherwise pretty impressed.

Google is launching a limited beta of Google Glass, and it's looking great so far. The Google Now, instant-search, and turn-by-turn navigation look fun. Apparently a version that attaches to glasses might be coming later.
